Just Curious

To the person (or persons) at West Publishing Group who keep returning to our site because of this post, I have one question for you: is Googling "westlaw sucks" part of your job?

Just curious because you've been here at least 10 times now. Hope you're finding that we love Westlaw and it only sucks in the sense that it "sucks you in." Any way you can hook us up with some more points for all of the free promotional value that you're getting from us?

Heck, if I didn't have Westlaw at my job right now, I'd just sit in a corner and weep. Sweet, sweet, addictive Westlaw.

Is anyone else using your Summer Westlaw pass for *gasp* non-academic purposes, as I am?

Crack, Meth, Westlaw...

Calculating Bitch said...

The only thing that sucks is that we can't collect points over the summer. :(

What is up with that? How am I ever going to get that Bose sound system for my IPod?

I switched to Lexis this summer 'cause they aren't turning the spigot off. I think I'll be sticking with them this school year too because their points can be spent on Amazon.com

Also, Shepardizing is awesome and makes for great innuendo.

Calculating Bitch said...

roberts, you are a traitor. I can't talk to you any more.

Larceny Bitch said...

Uh-oh. Lawbitches fight.

John Roberts said...

Calculating -

If only I had known sooner that switching to Lexis is what would get me some peace and quiet!

I think you're just jealous that I am free to experiment and find myself while you are shackled down to your pusher.

Calculating Bitch said...

I'm so not stamping your bingo card. And the next time you need help finding something for a research paper, don't come to me.

As a matter of fact, Roberts, it's over. I'll box up all of those mixed tapes you made me and leave them outside your locker.

[silence]

John Roberts said...

Why would I need a Westlaw Bingo card stamped when I can be spending my Lexis points on Amazon?

What good would your Westlaw focused knowledge be when I am searching and Shepardizing (hot!) on Lexis?

Giving the mix-tapes back is a low blow though. Who would have thought somone with the name 'Calculating Bitch' could be so, well, calculatingly cold? ;_;

P.S. Lexis rools, Westlaw (and its agents, officers, representatives, employees, and subsidiaries) drool.

Larceny Bitch said...

John, I tried. I really did. I went on Lexis and thought, "okay, I can do this, I can break the addiction." But no. What the fuck is all that "Combined sources" shit? Just take me to the damned jury instruction! So I said fuck that and went back to my beloved Westlaw. I tried. I'm with Calculating on this one.

John Roberts said...

Well Larceny, I guess I can't say that I'm surprised. I guess you just aren't Lexis material.

Calculating Bitch said...

Roberts, it's really hard to take an insult from someone who spells "rools" like a small child would.

Conclusion: Using Lexis reduces your intelligence.

I pity you, really.

John Roberts said...

calculating, it's really hard to take an insult from someone who is not hip to the lingo.

Conclusion: Using Westlaw increases your insufferable nerdiness.

I pity you, really.

Calculating Bitch said...

Wait, increasing my insufferable nerdiness is a bad thing?

I'm in law school, remember? My nerdiness can't get much worse.

Unless, of course I go get my Phd. (Sorry, Lance).
